I went back to the steepest part of the ascent this morning to see if I could get past it. I could only find a spot where I would basically have to climb up a large rock where part of the climb would mean I would have to lean backwards/outwards relying 100% on my hand grips in order not to fall dooooown. While moving, that would mean only one arm holding me up the right way. I wasn’t willing to take the risk. There might be another way around, but I couldn’t spot it unfortunately.
Instead, I returned to the valley, and walked it downwards and then eastwards to get to Huairou.
